Promised Land II 2nd Annual Charity game for Cystic Fibrosis
Posted 05 February 2009 - 07:44 AM
This year, we the players, want to make it even bigger and better than ever before. Last year 300 paintballers appeared, we will beat that number!.....last year we were without media coverage, this year we will have live to air radio with a local rock station...and we will do it all on Flagswipe's brand new paintball field.
Like last year those of us volunteering to assist with the reffing of the event for half a day get free admission to play the second half....anyone wishing to assist in this capacity please PM brother Vapor.
More details regarding what will be one of Ontario's epic paintball games will be made available shortly so please check this thread often.
Like last year we , the game organizers, will be accepting goods/donations etc etc from anyone wishing to help out with sponsoring the event which in turn will be used for our charity raffle.

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common, fatal genetic disease affecting young Canadians. CF is a multi-organ disease affecting primarily the lungs and the digestive system. In the lungs, CF causes severe breathing problems. A build-up of thick mucus makes it difficult to clear bacteria and leads to cycles of infection and inflammation, which damage the delicate lung tissues. They must follow a demanding daily routine of physical therapy to keep the lungs free of congestion and infection.
In the digestive tract, CF makes it extremely difficult to digest and absorb adequate nutrients from food. Thick mucus blocks the ducts of the pancreas, preventing enzymes from reaching the intestines to digest food. Therefore, persons with CF must consume a large number of artificial enzymes (on average 20 pills a day) with every meal and snack, to help them absorb adequate nutrition from their food.
So lets all come together and do what we can to raise some money for a cause that is well worth the effort and show the world what we, the Canadian Paintball community can do!

The Corporation's Director of Overseas Operations learns of the existence of a child. The child now some 20 years old being the only living relative of the former CEO who perished in that bloody battle so many years ago. The Corporationís acting CEO must find the child in an attempt to restore the Corporation to its former glory. Envoys are dispatched and a deal is struck with the remnants of the Outkast forces. The Outkastís have all but scattered, their homes in ruin to retreat underground. With the pledge of assistance from the Corporation, an Outkast leader emerges to once again organize the beaten Outkastís with a call to battle. Tired of the poor living conditions, they vow to retake the lands they feel are rightfully theirs.
Who will emerge victorious?
Who will find the child first?
June 14th....prepare for the mother of all battles as forces descend on Flagswipe Paintball to settle this once and for all!
Tickets on sale May 1st....be sure to register to qualify for an awesome door prize.
More details to follow

Promised Land II
20 years have passed since that fateful spring day in April. Telltale signs of that battle to end all battles are evident to this day throughout the Slicker provinces. The Outkastís have all but scattered, their homes in ruin to retreat underground, an Outkast leader emerges to once again organize the beaten Outkastís with a call to battle, all are very tired of the poor living conditions. But the Outkastís eyes are light sensitive and they can only exist in shadow, direct sun being blinding.
The Corporations CEO learns of the existence of a child, now some 20 years old residing with either the Slickers or Outkasts. The Corporationís CEO must find the child and eliminate him to continue ruling the Corporation Ö the Slickers/Outkasts must find the child and keep him aliveÖ..his DNA proving the child of former CEO and in so doing gain control of the Corporation for themselves
Corporations mission for the game is to identify the child and eliminate him ( player acting as the child is not eliminated as per the role until AFTER he is clearly identified as the child during the final battle.
Mission #1 Retrieve precious fuel to power the war machines
Mission #2 Flag control
Mission #3 Control the DMZ surrounds one centralized location
Mission #4 Go behind Slicker Positions and retrieve a package and escort a diplomat and the package out. (Frozen DNA - time limit) Player must retrieve mission card and deliver it to home base within the hour mission limit or DNA degrades. (Slickers must defend against success for the points)
Mission #5 to get code to diffuse bomb in enemy headquarters (time limit) Player must retrieve mission card and deliver it to home base within hour mission limit
Final Mission Whoever identifies the golden child will have possession...other teams must either rescue or in the Corporations case seek to destroy him
Ė Three verbal clues to identity of son of CEO, #1 slight physical description #2 description of something personal on person and #3 Clear identifying item
-Mission to retrieve mission cards giving fuel and keys to Flagswipe Tank.
Each team to get 2 such mission cards being made available to be found in general area of home baseÖ.if both teams find cards simultaneously whomever delivers the card to home base and has it radio in gets tank first and then other team gets it directly after.
So there you have it!....looking very forward to seeing all of our friends and associates and meeting new friends. See yas on the 14th :-)
